Googles Cesar Chavez doodle controversy Much adoodle about nothing

Not so leftie that they still don't want to sell Chrome.

Those venal vegetable munching lefties at Google have struck again.

Just when they should have been doodling away to celebrate a religious festival of bunnies colorful eggs and lots and lots of chocolate they go and place a large picture of recently deceased venal leftie Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez on the home page.

At least that's what certain irate and passionate humans thought when they raised their objections about Google's Easter doodle celebrating labor activist and very devout Christian Cesar Chavez.

Their passions overflowed to such an extreme that some even threatened to perform acts of unspeakable shame and treachery. Yes they shook their fists and claimed they would desert to Bing.

Clearly Google was entirely unprepared for this onslaught of fire and loathing.

All of its previous Easter doodles have been such blissful traditional and religious affairs. Yes all of them have featured Easter eggs.

That would be all one of them as far as I can see.

I tried performing a Google search for an Easter doodle and found one lone outlier in 2000.

This couldn't be true. There had to have been an Easter doodle last year otherwise the whole world would have risen in ire and brimstone.

There would surely have been mouths foaming hearts groaning and heads rolling.

So I searched all the doodles for 2012. Easter was April 8 last year. There was no doodle.

On April 9 however there seem to have been two doodles one celebrating Elias Lonnrot and the other Eadweard J. Muybridge.

Both raving radicals of course.

Still why would Google choose today of all days to upset so many so obviously Yes it was Cesar Chavez's birthday.

Oh and last year President Obama did happen to decree that March 31 would be known as Cesar Chavez Day. He asked all of America's citizens to observe this day with appropriate service community and education programs.

Today has indeed been an education.

Clearly Google's executives have been shaken to their hand knitted sweaters (from Peru) by the accusation of an anti religious bent.

The company issued a statement captured by Business Insider that read We enjoy celebrating holidays at Google but as you may imagine it's difficult for us to choose which events to highlight on our site. Sometimes for a given date we feature an historical event or influential figure that we haven't in the past.

It's about originality you see not religious observance.

Google at heart is proving over and over again that it's just an ad business. Sometimes it's an innovative quirky ad business. Sometimes it's a deeply money grabbing people ignorant slightly arrogant ad business. (More often the latter some would say.)

It's not and never has been a public service.

So if it decides to doodle Cesar Chavez you have the choice to sing for Bing. Some will give unto Cesar what is Cesar's others will give unto Bing what is Bing's.

I wonder how many of today's critics will actually follow through with their threats. My contacts in Vegas tell me that the over under is 3 886.
